Oprah probably giggled to herself when Roseanne Barr got herself all in a tizzy over O’s endorsement of Barack Obama as a presidential candidate because she knows that presidents are irrelevant, silly. It’s the people on the TV who run things. And now, Oprah now owns yet another giant media source–OWN, the Oprah Winfrey Network.
The talk show host revealed her excitement over her new venture in a statement, “For me, the launch of ‘The Oprah Winfrey Network’ is the evolution of the work I’ve been doing on television all these years and a natural extension of my show.” Hopefully, programming will include a show in which she publicly smites her enemies on camera because–little known fact about me–I have an insatiable bloodlust.
